The Free Application for Federal Student 援助 (FAFSA) and M State's FAFSA code
The M State Office of 金融援助 recommends that you apply electronically by completing a FAFSA 在线. Your application for financial aid should be made well in advance of the time funds are needed. We recommend at least five to six weeks for processing of your completed financial aid file. Please keep in mind that you must reapply for financial aid each academic year and you cannot receive aid from more than one school for the same period of enrollment. In order to receive a financial aid award letter you must be admitted to M State as a degree-seeking student.
M State's FAFSA code is 005541.
Students with an earned bachelor's degree are not eligible for financial aid.
An affordable college, made even more affordable
M State's financial aid team can help you anticipate the cost of college and get the financial aid for which you're eligible. We also want to make the process of paying for college as understandable as possible. The earlier you apply for financial aid, the better.
More than half of all M State students have a tuition-free experience through grants and 奖学金 that don't have to be paid back. M State's friendly and knowledgeable business services and financial aid teams are ready to help you.
Changes in your family’s financial circumstances
Sometimes the information provided on the FAFSA does not reflect a family’s current resources or ability to pay for college because financial circumstances have changed due to special or extenuating circumstances. Changes may be made on a case-by-case determination to more accurately reflect the financial need of students and families.
These special circumstances can include:
- An unforeseen loss of employment or income
- The death of a parent or spouse
- The divorce or separation of a student or parent
- An income reduction of 20 percent or more due to factors beyond the person’s control
- A significant income reduction due to the loss of child support
- Unusually high medical or dental expenses that aren't covered by insurance
- A one-time increase in parent income due to an IRA distribution or pension withdrawal
If you feel you have special or extenuating circumstances, please contact the 金融援助 办公室.
